So, what has changed?
A shift in me. I am thankful for this life I lead. I understand how fragile life is from grieving the deaths of two good people this past fall.
I am thankful for my marriage. I love my husband's sharp mind and his sense of humor.
I am thankful for my children. I am thankful for Justin's quirky sense of humor. I am thankful for Aidan's sweetness and have enjoyed that he sleeps in his frog costume (from last week's Halloween party in the house). I am thankful for Jordan running around the house pretending to talk.
I am thankful for the good people I work with. Too many of them to mention here.
I am thankful for the church I attend. I am thankful that it feels like home.
Most of all, I am thankful to the creator of the universe. You have blessed me in more ways than I can count. I am unworthy of all the gifts in this life. I will be forever grateful for them.
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.
